Komainu hatchlings are feisty almost from the moment they break free of their eggs, happily pouncing on everything that moves and some things that don't. Though quite small at first, they're determined to be fierce, and become so once they grow bigger. Along with the jade crystals on their bodies, komainu carry a jade orb with them throughout their life. They often play with this orb as they grow, though they tend to dislike anything else - including their magi - touching it.

Komainu are considered omens of great luck and power, but only so long as they still carry the jade orb they hatched with. Fortunately it's very difficult to separate a komainu from its orb, but those few that lose theirs are said to also lose their bright colouring and their good tempers. Komainu crystalwings are generally happy creatures, with some magi saying they've heard their komainu laugh at a particularly good joke. Though generally a creature of deserts, komainu can adapt to colder climates, and are said to carry a lot of body heat that their magi can take advantage of on chilly days.
